No desktop left behind
Following major desktop software updates in June, Adobe also announced a variety of additional feature improvements Monday, including improved Mercury performance and new 3D printing profiles in Photoshop CC, an enhanced 3D pipeline for After Effects CC, EPUB interactivity for InDesign CC, search bins in Premiere Pro, and a new Curvature tool for Illustrator CC.
Another new feature included with today's Photoshop CC and Dreamweaver CC updates will make life easier for web designers as well. Extract aims to simplify the comp-to-code workflow by allowing Photoshop users to package optimized image assets from layers, while Dreamweaver users can at last drag and drop assets directly out of PSD files. Developers can even pull assets straight from shared Photoshop files on the Creative Cloud website.
Last but not least, the Behance creative social network that joined Adobe last year appears to be thriving, with four million members and more than 20,000 new portfolios added daily. To help employers find talent more easily, the service has introduced Talent Search, advanced portfolio-based hiring tools that leverage Adobe imaging science to find the right talent for the right job.
Ready for download
All of Adobe's October desktop product updates are now available to paid Creative Cloud members from the CC Desktop app, while the mobile apps can be downloaded today from the App Store, requiring only a free Adobe ID and devices running iOS 7.0 or later. Android support is promised for the future.
